I think it depends on your location. I live in Ohio and it is a constant battle to keep the cast iron surfaces of my power tools free from rust. I have tried paste wax and it does not work for me, and a fine layer of corrosion is evident after only a week or so. I typically use T-9 and it is effective provided I use a thick coat. There was a very interesting article in the recent August edition of FWW which goes into detail on rust protection, and they recommend using CRC 3-36. I bought some this week to try.
